Abstract : Optical devices and circuits can be synthesized from specified transmission characteristics using the methods of inverse scattering. Both analytical and numerical inverse scattering techniques that have been developed to synthesize optical devices and circuits are discussed. Large-scale guided-wave structures such as optical logic gates and optical interconnects can be synthesized using the techniques discussed here. Finite difference based frequency domain analysis technique has been used to verify the results obtained by these inverse scattering techniques.
